Occupational therapists are client-centred health professionals who work with people of all ages and life stages to support them to do the things they need and want to do in all aspects of life. Occupational therapists call these things “occupations”.
Occupations include a wide range of activities including taking care of oneself and others, working, volunteering, and participating in hobbies, interests and social events.
The goal of occupational therapy is to enable people to safely and independently engage in ‘occupations’ that provide them with a sense of purpose and meaning.
